Bakers and Larners
You would be hard pressed to find a more impressive department store than Bakers and Larners. Their food hall is massive and you can find the most obscure ingredients such as black squid ink pasta, and they have the most fantastic selection of fresh coffee, tea, and cheese. A mooch around is very much recommended during your cottage holiday.
